About Elland

Elland is a market town in Calderdale, south of Halifax, sitting next to the River Calder. The town's name is derived from the Old English meaning 'land by the water, river or land partly or wholly surrounded by water'. In the 2001 Census, Elland had a recorded population of 14,554. Elland was a centre of wool production, though the decline of this trade had a significant effect on the town, with many mills demolished or converted to residences.
